Whether stipulated by law or being done due to an emergency, employees have the right to request a leave from work. Any worker may apply for parental leave if he or she needs to care for a medically ill family member or when somebody dies in the family. Besides sick leaves, there are a lot of forms of leave that an employee may be entitled to and being paid for it.
Our Sample Forms Leave Requests may be used by any employee who needs to fill up standard forms of leave requests, or these can be used by companies as reference to make their own pre-printed leave forms that can be replaced by their own company logos. These are all free to download in both Word Doc and PDF file formats.

The most common leave request is the sick leave request. Sick leaves guarantee workers the right to stay home when they are sick. This comes with the premise that they are going to get paid for it as long as they don’t go beyond the days allowed for them to stay off work while sick. Most countries have different laws regarding sick leaves, and these forms may be used internationally, so no particular days are indicated, unless the employee may opt to be absent without pay after all his leaves may have been consumed.
Sick leaves have many applications depending on which country you are in. In the United States, an employee can apply for sick leave for reasons ranging from caring for a sick family member to attending doctor appointments. They can also apply for sick leaves to attend to serious concerns of sexual assault and domestic violence.
There are those who argue that paid sick leaves can increase worker productivity since the employee has enough sense to make up for the lost man hours knowing he’s being taken care of by the company while he was sick. It’s a win-win strategy that can produce positive results since sick workers are not only unproductive at work, they also have the potential to spread sickness to other workers in his department.

The second most common leave request is that of parental leave. Parental leave may apply to maternity leave, paternity leave, and in some countries, adoption leave. Generally, parental leave is done when a working parent needs to take time off to care for a sick child. In this aspect, the law stipulates that parents are entitled to paid leaves for up to an officially sanctioned couple of days based on the laws given in each country. This also applies to maternity leaves when a pregnant worker has to give birth and she has to take care of her newborn child after.
